As Nintendo embraces the Switch's destiny as a re-release machine, a ton of existing and yesteryear games are coming to the platform. Some surprises like beloved RPG Divinity: Original Sin 2 are making the jump, complete with an interesting feature that should be bog standard for all cross-plat ports: cross-saves. The wizards at Larian let PC and Switch players freely import and export their saves at will, and Switch saves are compatible with PC and vice-versa.

"For players who wish to continue their adventures on the go, Divinity: Original Sin 2 - Definitive Edition features first-of-its-kind cross-saves between Nintendo Switch systems and Steam on PC, which means players can upload and download their save files to continue playing on the go," reads a press release announcement.

The Switch port also features 4-player online co-op, but you'll need to be a Switch Online subscriber to play. It doesn't look like couch co-op is supported. No details on resolution and FPS were revealed, but the game isn't demanding on that front so the Switch shouldn't have a lot of issues there. The res does seem dropped of course, and some things like backgrounds are a bit fuzzy, but that's to be expected.

The Divinity: Original Sin 2 Definitive Edition comes with a bunch of tweaks and goodies found in the PC version, and is now available for $49.99 on the eShop.
